The perfect keto appetizer! Keto Sausage Cream Cheese Pinwheels are made with fat head dough and loaded with sausage and cream cheese! Just two net carbs per serving!
Last Friday I got a call to pack and bag and head back to my hometown. My sweet sister in law has been expecting her third child and my new niece decided to make an appearance four weeks early! Saturday my family welcomed little Haddie Josephine and we are so thrilled. Mom and baby are doing really well.
Haddie is in the NICU because her little lungs aren’t quite developed yet, but she is making big strides every day. So this is a really exciting time for our family. I have been making some freezer meals and some meal prep type dishes to make life a little easier and these Keto Sausage Cream Cheese Pinwheels happen to be perfect for keto meal prep!
What kind of keto dough do you use?
These little rolls make the perfect low carb appetizer, breakfast or even an easy dinner. This recipe uses a fat head style dough which includes mozzarella cheese, cream cheese almond flour and ground flax seed. This dough is gluten and egg free and very low carb so it is perfect for keto meals.
I love this dough because it is so easy to work with. You can manipulate it without it tearing easily. I’ve made Keto Hot Pockets, these delicious Brie Bites and Pizza Rolls with this dough.
How many carbs are in Keto Sausage Cream Cheese Pinwheels?
The net carbs will depend on how thick you slice your rolls. I felt the average person would probably slice them a little thicker and you would get 10 rolls per recipe. At 10 per recipe these come to 2 net carbs per roll.
My personal preference is to slice them a little thinner and get 12 out of the recipe, but I prefer a slightly crisper crust so thinner works. Just keep this in mind when calculating your carbs.

- This One Pan Bacon Cheeseburger Skillet is the BEST one pan keto dinner.
- Easy Keto Pizza Bites, under one net carb each.
- Keto Chili Cheese Chips (they taste just like Chili Cheese Fritos! and ONE net carb)
- 2 cups shredded mozzarealla cheese
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 2 tablespoons ground flax meal
- For the Filling:
- 1/2 pound cooked breakfast sausage, drained
- 3 ounces of cream cheese
Preheat oven to 400
For the Rolls:
In a microwave proof mixing bowl combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between until completely melted. Add the almond flour and ground flax meal.
Mix the dough well until you have a soft ball
Between two silicone baking mats or parchment paper roll the dough into a rectangle roughly 12x9.
For the filling:
Combine the sausage and cream cheese.
Spread the sausage cream cheese mixture evenly on the dough.
Starting at one end roll the dough as tightly as you can into a log.
Slice into rolls about the width of two fingers, be careful not to slice them too thick because it will be difficult for the dough in the center to cook through.
Place the rolls on a greased baking sheet.
Bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
These are great with breakfast sausage or switch things up by using Italian sausage!
